You will need:

For the cake:

  • 1 ¾ sticks butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/8 cup almond meal
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup cold mashed potato (make with a ricer for extra smoothness, or just throw in the leftovers from your fridge)
  • 3 lemons’ worth of zest
  • 2 tsp baking powder

For the glaze:

  • 4 tsp icing sugar
  • juice of 1 lemon

Preheat the over to 350°. Butter an 8” round cake pan.

Cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy, then beat in eggs one at a time. Add almond meal, mashed potato, lemon zest and baking powder. Pour into the pan and bake for 30-45 mins or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10-15 mins, then finish cooling on rack.

Mix icing sugar and lemon juice together. Pierce the top of the cake all over with a toothpick, then pour it over, letting it drip down the sides. Smooth with a spoon or spatula.

Let the cake cool completely before serving.
